BOR dismissed it like it was no big deal and proceeded to attack Rep. John Lewis (D-GA) for his comment that McCain and Palin are "sewing the seeds of hatred and division" and chided Lewis for not condemning Obama for going to the DailyKos convention. At this point the TPM turned into an attack on Obama and McCain was in the clear.Continue reading >>
